Project description

CSIRO is currently working with Pacific Services Group Holdings P/L (PSG Holdings) to deliver the Site Clean-up and Demolition Project at its Highett site.

The main aim of the project is to safely demolish all buildings on the site and remove any potentially hazardous materials to ensure the site is left in a safe condition for the new owner.

For the latest updates about the works please go to the Project updates page.
